Olympic judo gold medalist Mashu Baker attends a special Kit Kat event to encourage Japanese students for the next school entrance exams, at Yushima Tenjin Shrine on January 12, 2017, Tokyo, Japan. Nestle's Kit Kat product is popular with students because its pronunciation in Japanese sounds like ''Kitto Katsu'' which means ''surely win''. Every year Japanese students tie hand-written wishes and messages at the shrine, wishing for luck in passing entrance exams to high school and colleges. The Yushima Tenjin Shrine is dedicated to the god of learning. (Photo by Rodrigo Reyes Marin/AFLO)
